RFID

With your RFID board:

Is it possible to tie in an external antenna?

Where can I shop for micro sized glass RFID capsules compatible with your board?

Thanks.

Not recommended. See this thread.

The PN532 is only capable of reading 13.56MHz tags, mostly ISO14443A which includes Mifare (though this is about 98% of the tags used in the real world anyway). I think the small glass capsules are all in the 125 - 134 kHz range
